    Liner Replacement

    Hello all,
    Just had our 8 year old leaking liner replaced and thought the process would be of interest to some.
    The installer is Mark and we are located in the Raleigh N.C. area. I would give Mark a high recommendation for any pool work. If you would like his number pm me.
    The old liner was a beaded liner, we replaced it with a Uni-bead and removed the 8 year old bead
    track hanging the new liner on the wall. Pool is a Sharkline 18x33.

    Nice photos! Why did you decide against another beaded liner?

    Looks awesome... just about the same way I did mine last year...

    Unfortunately, I didn't exercize enough patience, and I got left with quite a few wrinkles.. Lesson learned for next time..

    Mark suggested not using the 8 year old bead track. He had a pool about the same age break the track a
    day after a liner replacement, not a good thing.

    So why not replace the bead track? You had the rails off anyway, right?

    So the uni bead hangs on its own bead that is included eliminating the need for a track. The other one used the track into which you hung the liner, right?

    A unibead has the flexibility to be used with a j-hook or bead receiver, so that may have been the option.

    Lack of planning We didn't have a new track so Mark decided to hang the liner from the wall.

    That is correct. We would not have removed the top rails if the liner was hung from the track.
    I think a lot of installers would have gone ahead with the bead track but I agreed that at the age
    of the pool why not be safe.
